For anyone with a waterway interest, the IWA (Inland Waterways Associaiion) AGM takes place near to Stonehouse Station on Saturday, 29th September.

IWA’s 59th Annual General Meeting will take place on 29th September at 11.30am at Maidenhill School, Stonehouse, Gloucestershire.

Morning Meeting
In addition to the AGM, the morning meeting will include a presentation by WRG chair and IWA trustee Mike Palmer on the launch of a new report which hails the value of Waterways in Progress. Ebley Mill is one of the several case studies detailed in the report, an area transformed as part of £115m of investment to excavate the canal, build 550 new houses and create over 770 jobs. Two presentations from our branch and region volunteer teams will centre on our more locally focused campaigns, and there will be updates on our successes across the year as well as news highlighting our plans and objectives for 2019.

Afternoon Activities
Members can take part in tours of Ebley Mill and a guided walk to Wallbridge Lock which was opened earlier this year by HRH Prince Charles. Please book your place for the guided walk using the link below.
There may even be a chance to attend a work party day on Sunday 30th September, organised by CCT in conjunction with Waterway Recovery Group.

Book Your Lunch
A complementary buffet lunch will be available. Please let us know if you would like lunch and any dietary requirements.

Getting There & Parking
The school is just 1 mile from the M5 and close to the home of Stroud District Council at Ebley Mill.
There is some car parking at the school for those with limited mobility which should also be booked, and there is plenty of on-street parking in the area.
Stroud is a beautiful location with lots of excellent attractions and we may have a surprise in store for those who come along to the meeting. See you in the Cotswolds.

What a pity they don't tell you about getting there by public transport ... on which topic, boat and rail transport in the Stroud Valley has a fascinating history.
